Celebration time it is as Erica Bauermeister is down from her Port Townsend home to help launch her newest novel, The Scent Keeper (St. Martin’s). The Scent Keeper should follow its predecessors - The School for Essential Ingredients, Joy for Beginners and The Lost Art of Mixing in becoming reader favorites near and far.
"Told in a lyrical, haunting prose, the story provides fascinating information about the ways in which different fragrances can impact human behavior and the struggles of finding one's own identity. An artfully crafted coming-of-age story that will take the reader on an exquisite olfactory adventure. " - Kirkus Reviews.
"Bauermeister deftly weaves plot and language into a luminous discovery of love—for another person, for a place, and ultimately for oneself." - Carol Cassella.
